On July 15, Powder Cocktail is released in Russian cinemas. An impressive action comedy with dizzying stunts and an exciting plot where the main character, Sam (Karen Gillan), fights well, owns different styles of martial arts, knows how to handle weapons, and does an excellent job as a killer. She inherited the talent for killing from her mother (Lena Headey), who returns to the profession when her daughter needs help. Helping the reunited family are three librarians: Florence (Michelle Yeoh), Anna May (Angela Bassett), and Madeleine (Carla Gugino), who, however, in reality, have little in common with the reading room workers. Their library is actually a secret hideout of professional hitmen with an impressive arsenal that is sorted into shelves among books.
One of the previous works of director Navot Papushado—”Very Bad Boys”—Quentin Tarantino named the best film of 2013. In the new picture, Papushado decided to focus on “very bad women”, putting a family clan of assassins in opposition to the crime syndicate. But the trademark mixture of humor and violence that is inherent in the films of Tarantino and the Coen brothers is preserved and creates a unique tone for the picture.

Unlike the characters in Powder Cocktail, Eve (Jessica Chastain) is used to working alone. However, after another special operation to eliminate the client does not go according to plan, she is forced to find herself in the role of a victim. And the thing is that the head of a secret organization, Simon (Colin Farrell), began hunting for his former employee-killer.
Perhaps the actor Colin Farrell, when filming Agent Eve, was haunted by a sense of déjà vu because a few years ago, in the film Low Down in Bruges. He played a hitman who wanted to be killed on the orders of his boss. Another actress from the “Agent Eve” cast also tried on the role of a hired killer in 1996. Geena Davis played a teacher with a bloody past in the action movie “The Long Kiss Goodnight.”

Beatrix Kiddo (Uma Thurman) is not the most traditional example of a female killer. She uses a samurai sword more often than a firearm, and honor is much more valuable to her than money. However, like other hitmen, Beatrix cannot afford to quit and stop killing. Actually, after trying to do this, the heroine of Uma Thurman becomes a victim of a bloody massacre, and having survived, begins to take revenge on her offenders.
It is interesting that the name of the main character in the first film is not mentioned; it was drowned out by a special sound, but you could see it on the air tickets. At the same time, the audience knows her by two nicknames: the Bride and the Black Mamba. And in order to live up to her image, the actress spent three months in grueling training under the guidance of the director of action scenes, Wu Ping, losing 11 kilograms along the way.
